The Beacon -
September marks the beginning of our meteorological autumn.
Often known as the harvest month, each day the sun rises a little later and dips lower in the sky. A sign to every living creature that winter is not far away.
As the cold creeps in many animals banquet on a variety of wild forest food and bugs,to build up fat reserves to last them through the winter. Hedgehogs,Dormice, Bats, Queen bees, Frogs and Toads all go into some form of hibernation. The animals slow their heart rate, breathing, and lower body temperature to save energy.
Fortunately, the 1,300 members of East Surrey Walkers do not have to go in hibernation and can continue to choose from 52 free walks every quarter to keep them active. Perhaps an extra sweater, socks hat, or a tot of whisky, and they stay comfy and warm.
So don’t be a HIBERNATOR this autumn: come and step out with East Surrey Walkers.
Morning Prayer with Churches Together
After the Churches Together away day last year, it was decided to build on relationships between the churches by praying together and we have established a routine of praying Morning Prayers together every Wednesday at 8.30am.
During September these services will take place at St. Paul’s Church, Woldingham.
In future months it will be at the following venues.
All are welcome!
